Hello all! I am Mariya 18 years old living in Ukraine, Lugansk.I am finishing high school this year with distinction and my dream to get great formal eductaion in Computer Science.I have been always a tech girl and want to destroy stereotype about dominance men in computing technology. I think that woman in technology is critical because if we continue to be silent or absent, others will make decisions on our behalf.If woman will be continued unrepresentedin this field, the technical world will be unbalanced and men will make decisions based on their experience and problems’ views which is highly different from the women thoughts. I have great interest in studying and research in computing area such as interactive classroom,how technology can improve of sustainable agriculture, future impact of technology on my and all future generation.
I decided to apply for getting Bachelor Degree in Information Technology in Denver University. I totally satisfied all requirements and my application is approved.Just one feature didn’t applicable for meit is the tuition fee.I know it is daring and may be even overbold for such girl like me, who lives in Luhansk. But Ifeel myself learning ability,energy and great desire to change what’s next in the technology field that has been determined long time by hardware prototypes and processors.
I’d like to tell just a few words about the place where I am living. I am located in Lugansk, Ukraine, which is occupied by terrorist organization and destroyed by war operation. The life here doesn't become better even with temporal cease-fire of arms. Job hunting is extremely hard process which give good results in very rare cases andwith poorly-paid jobs. The national currency hryvna and Russian ruble which is used here, down too low for dollar. I totally dislike any educational programs and I hate higher education which is offered here and based on bribes without providing any up-to-date knowledge and skills.I take a great interest in open online courses like Coursera and Edx and it impacts on my choice to get high education online.Denver University offers online Bachelor Degree in Information Technology which totally meets my expectations and I really go mad about it. My family totally support me with these intention and desire. My father sold our family’s car to provide me with some funds. He got 9000$ for it an my family has 7000$ savings, but I still need funds to get this education.
I hope very much for the possibility of crowdfudning. Please give me a chance to get this path and possibility to realize my desire and abilities. Every donation will give me a chance to be closer to my dream and don’t loose it all. I hope in mutual assistance and in power of humanity and supportness.
